Do you like your fruit tart or sweet? This becomes a fundamental question in the topsy-turvy world of BitterSweet: A Fruitful Circus, where we all need to be keeping a close eye on the encroaching vines of the neighbor's flowers... or do we? Wise Fool's 2nd Annual CircAspire-- a pre-professional extravaganza of flight, fancy, and transformation—will be created and performed by locals spanning five decades as clowns, acrobats, stilt-walkers, aerialists, actors, unicyclists, breakdancers, and spoken word and visual artists. Directed by Amy Christian and Sarah Jane Moody, Music Production by Ginger Dunnill, and set and tech design by an all-local creative production team of professional artists.
